The One With April Fools’ Day

Birthday Outing To Ocean Park

Well, what do you know. It’s the 1st of April. Also affectionately know as the April Fools’ Day. Apart from the opportunity to play pranks on people, I also like to think today marks the beginning of April, also the beginning of second quarter of the year.

Now, where did all the time go?

It has been some time since I last blogged. I had the best intention to continue blogging – heck, I even have a Blogging Schedule on Google Calendar – but I lapsed. Drowned. In work, dates, going outs, what-have-yous. In a blink of an eye I come to face that, well, I haven’t exactly moved on from where I was one quarter of a year back.

The other day a friend played a prank on me. Not that I was offended; I mean, I am known to be able to laugh at myself at the worst of time. But in a charade to mask the friend’s intention as simply an amusing joke, I simply said:

Don’t do to others what you don’t like others do to you.

Simple enough, isn’t it? I find it difficult to comprehend why some people think it is perfectly alright to treat others in some way, yet get mad when others treat them the same.

How bizarre.

Another thing I learned recently is to slow down in life. There is always more work waiting for you in the office, always another train coming just one minute later (in HK, that’s true), always another person who think you are worth at least a date.

So relax and try not to inhale your lunch in five minutes flat.

I like the idea of a Ferris wheel. Once you are in, there is nothing else you could do but to sit it out while the wheel takes all the time in the world bringing you to heaven and back. You have no choice but to slow down and see. And listen. And smell.

And smile. The world is too beautiful to be experienced in a rush. And that ain’t no joke.
